Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Dead people on tape

One of the most stupid things to me, when I was a little kid, was when I saw adults checking the obituaries while we were waiting in the checkout line at the grocery store. Often, someone reading them would say, "Oh, I remember so-and-so. Blah, blah, blah." I always thought it was creepy.

As a retired Taper, sometimes I get creepy thoughts about the dead people recorded on my tapes. Who woulda thunk it? At first, I thought there was maybe half-a-dozen ghosts or so calling me out. Double-figures was not on my horizon yet. I just peeked again. I jotted some names down on a list - for the very first time. Uh-oh!

I stopped looking for dead people once I reached 10 victims. It took me 2 minutes. After smoking a bowl, I remembered one more. Obviously, there's more.

Stop haunting me...

"Vince? Brent? Janis? Jimmy?"

Wrong. To clarify my case, I was saying, just my tape recordings - haunting me from my vault. To further clarify, I'm saying, my recordings -- just the ones that have been released. Otherwise, we have dozens of corpses here. Other people around here are in the same boat as me. Lots of people taped lots of stuff. I was interested to see if anyone else gets creepy thoughts about this stuff.

The first time I heard the Dark Star -> Death Don't from 11-2-69, I thought about / felt an odd presence of Jerry and Pig, but soon after noticing that - when into that amazing, heartfelt Death Don't Have No Mercy, I felt a strong presence of several of my friends' parents who had died somewhat recently . . . not creepy, just a bit strange. The next morning I found out that one of my best friends lost his father that night . . . strange, bittersweet and weird, but not creepy.

I remain saddened by Jerry Moore's passing. I once had the pleasure to have met Jerry over at Lossless Legs. Jerry, Rob Berger and myself chatted about taping equipment for a few moments.

Hands-down, my most highly-prized Jerry Moore recording is GD - July 31,1973 - Roosevelt Stadium. There is no SBD for this date. Jerry Garcia's b'day is at midnight. Then came Set 2. It is the meltdown that all of us had that night. No one there was not tripping.

I feel like a C- smart ass now , making jokes when one of our own is in a grief / mourning place . I'm sorry dhMonte .
So many that have contributed to our scene have gone over .
That is why it is so important for all of us to document our experiences with this epic that is the GD .
Been to a show ? Why not write a review ?
Have some unreleased AUD's ? please consider placing them in IA .
Have that younger friend who likes '90's GD , and the post - GD stuff ? Maybe , initially at least , we can descend from our Mountain of Coolness , and send some positive vibes out , and maybe have an opportunity , later , to share our mojo .
Crass , blunt truth is time . There is only so much of it left , and when something is left unwritten it's gone .

Every time I put on a Steve Goodman tape I get a strange, tingly, melancholic feeling that overwhelms me . . . I occasionally get that feeling with other live tapes, Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon come to mind, but it's rare.
